Irwin started in the photographic community in 1979 when he entered the Fashion Institute of Technology as a photo major and also started working part time in a local NYC camera store.
After a short time assisting and shooting his own work, he quickly learned that he would be much happier and more successful on the logistics side of our industry rather than the creative side. So for the past 30 years he has spent his time working at some very well known NYC photographic institutions such as Hirsch Photo and his last 15 years at Calumet Photographic.
His focus for the later half of his time has been dedicated to building a name and reputation for the highest level of technology, quality, and most importantly service. During this time he has developed a large and loyal following of clients and vendors.
Harwin Camera is proud to be New York’s newest PhaseOne partner. Harwin Camera is all about service and the relationship that need to exist between supplier and end user. It is my goal to continue to offer the very best products, services, support, and workshops in our industry.
